Surrey named one of the best universities in the world

The University of Surrey has been ranked within the top one per cent of universities in the world - and one of the top 20 institutions under 50 years old - by the QS World University Rankings.

The annual QS review highlights top universities based on performance indicators covering research, teaching, employability and internationalisation.

The review does not include every higher education institution in the world. The top 3,000 universities were evaluated and approximately 900 assessed for the QS World University Rankings 2015/16. Surrey was placed 247th, within the top one per cent of all higher education institutions in the world.

The University is also ranked 18th in the QS Top 50 Under 50 2015 – a ranking of the world’s top 50 universities under 50 years old, and was awarded a five star international rating by QS earlier this year.

Professor Vince Emery, Pro Vice-Chancellor (International Relations) said: “I am delighted that Surrey has been recognised within the top one per cent of the world’s universities, reflecting our commitment to internationalisation.

“Our QS Global Ranking follows excellent results across the UK league tables and is further evidence of our increasing international strengths in research and business collaboration.  We are proud to offer an inspiring research-led learning and teaching environment that fuels students with a spirit of curiosity and a desire to improve the world we live in.”
